Summer Bridal Make Up

This July I had the pleasure of doing Katie and her bridal party’s make up for her wedding at All Saint’s Church, Chelmsford / Vaulty Manor, Heybridge, Essex.

Katie’s bridal party included 6 bridesmaids and Mother of the Bride to get ready for her 1pm church ceremony which was conveniently a few steps away from her parents house. It was there that we spent the morning of this hot summers day getting everybody ready to the sound of church bell’s rehearsing.

Katie opted for a summery smokey eye for her bridal make up look. We used nude & shades of purple, particularly Naked Pigment from MAC which has a gorgeously subtle shimmer and unexpected from Make Up Geek Cosmetics to enhance her gleaming blue eyes. This conveniently went alongside her colour theme of neutral lilacs and dusty pinks. We finished off the eye look with a pair of delicate lashes and a bridal favourite of mine – Ardell Demi Wispies.
On her skin we used Marc Jacobs ReMarcable foundation which provides a flawless finish with its full coverage yet light texture. We then added some bridal glow with pinky cheeks using Make Up Geek Spell Bound and highlighted her features using Becca Cosmetics Champagne Pop!

I finished off Katie’s look with Boldly Bare lipliner by MAC and a swipe of NYX Butter gloss in Creme Brulee which Katie also purchased to keep her lips looking fresh through the day!

For the bridal party I had my lovely friend assisting me to ensure the entire bridal party were ready on time. We kept the look natural and fresh to compliment the brides make up and the overall wedding theme!

Congratulations to Katie and Sean, I am honoured to have been part of your Wedding Day!
